Under Pressure is a recent WPH project which explores the availability of skilled trades workers in the Industrial, Construction and Motive Power trades.
The report includes labour market information such as the educational breakdown, gender breakdown, ages, and new hires to near-retirees ratio, as well as other information.
Of interest to job seekers and employment service providers will be the occupational profiles section of the report. Highlighted are the occupations that show the strongest employment demands.
Listed is a description of the occupation, median income, number of people employed in 2016, unemployment rate, and more.
Some of the key findings of the report include:
- The image of trades is negative
- Skill levels (of all types) in apprentices are a concern among employers
- Employers may not be investing enough in apprenticeship training.
